But I'm playing with a tricky question. I'm working on a project for class. In the bootstrap, we have to check to see if the socket is occupied or not. I see how to do this through catching the IOexception, but there's got to be a cleaner method to check and see if the port is occupied or not. Anybody know how?
Thanks in advance for the information.
